Career Assessment Tools

We are often asked, “Is there a ‘test’ I can take to help me figure out what career best suits me?” The University Career Center offers a variety of career assessment tests to meet your needs. We have individual career counseling sessions for your style and interests. Talk with a career coach during advising hours or contact the Information Desk (734-764-7460) to arrange your career assessment.


Professional Assessment

If you would like an in-depth career counseling experience that utilizes career assessment instruments to help in your choice of academic major or career, you may want to arrange an hour-long appointment with a career coach at the University Career Center (UCC). You can work with a coach to incorporate the results of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), CliftonStrengths (CS) and/or the Strong Interest Inventory (SII) into your decisions.

If you are interested in taking an assessment, contact us to discuss your decision-making strategies and the assessment that will be most helpful for you. (Note: If you want to take a particular assessment and have some financial concerns please contact us at 734-764-7460 or email Joelle Fundaro Randall at [email protected] the UCC offers scholarships)


Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)®

The MBTI is a self-report questionnaire designed to make Jung’s theory of psychological types understandable and useful in everyday life. It is one of the most widely used instruments for understanding personality differences and is widely used to understand people in terms of their decision-making styles, preferences for communication and work environments, and for career development and exploration.
